I know we did but I don't recall the subject of KW GD's - I am continually amazed at the amount of variants made by such a small company! Perhaps they invested so much $$ in R&D and small lot specials that they were doomed for failure...Similar to issues at USWC?

Bryan and Jon,
This would constitute a very interesting research effort and comprise a large variety, Swiss and U.S. with a large intra-family variation available. The non-mag and Mark Twin models are considered quite rare. This is a great project and will further enhance our appreciation and knowledge of this under appreciated company. Interesting too from a business and marketing angle.
Kudos to both of you.
